that time of year again and i have to cram to read my california general election manual, all 121 pages of it. i am reminded that voting takes conscientious effort and education of oneself in order to so wisely. yet therein lies the trouble…most of us do not take the time to read our stuff. we are too busy raising our families and watching our budget to tease out real truths and vote accordingly. its too easy to watch tv, listen to the ads, hear the news feed us falsities and then make our decisions based on vague ideals. the result is a generation of elected officials who have micromanaged us into the ground and left us with an economic mess. let us be diligent this election and educate ourselves, …..even if it means cramming, for we cannot afford to vote haphadzardly any longer. be well, frankie
